Senator Tom Davis fights to protect the residents of Sea Pines in Hilton Head. The residents of Sea Pines would like to develop a dredging plan that allows them to move forward without government involvement. Senator Davis’s minority report on the bill will ensure it is not taken up during session and the people of Sea Pines are able to work to remedy the situation themselves.
Dear Beaufort County Constituent:
As you may recall, I have regularly held “TALK TO TOM” forums – a total of 15 so far – since I was sworn in as your state senator in January 2009. The forums are designed in part to update you on actions that were being taken (or not being taken) by the state legislature, but they also allow me to get your input on the issues of the day, something that helps me better represent you in the South Carolina State Senate.
My next TALK TO TOM will be held on May 23, 2011 at 6:30 PM at the Palmetto Electric building for the Bluffton/Sun City area. I will follow my usual format, beginning with a short presentation by me on the issues being considered by the legislature and ending with an extended question-and-answer period. A broad range of topics will be discussed, including a cap on state government spending, illegal immigration, school funding, Voter ID, tort reform and – a particularly hot issue in Sun City – the right of homeowner associations to hold liquor licenses. Again, here is the relevant forum information:
Monday, May 23, 2011 – 6:30 PM
Palmetto Electric — Bluffton
New River Highway on 278
I hope that you will be able to join me at this Talk to Tom. It is a privilege to represent you in the South Carolina State Senate and I look forward to updating you on what’s going on and receiving your input.
State Senator for Beaufort County

Here’s a clip of the short speech I made in DC last Friday evening to the 120 Beaufort County folks who made the trek to our nation’s capital:
I rode to DC with my constituents because I believe our federal government has embarked upon a course of action that is deforming the relationship between Americans and their government.
There is hope; no need to throw in the towel just yet. As Adam Smith said, “there is a lot of ruin in a nation,” and a country has to travel long and hard in the wrong direction before the damage becomes irreversible. But too many people fail to even realize we have taken a wrong turn.
Our elected officials have failed us, and there’s plenty of blame to go around. I am angry not just with the current administration and governing parties in Congress, but also with Republican leaders who have in recent years voted for massive new entitlements. That said, however, the Obama Administration has certainly stomped on the accelerator.
If you share my concerns, or if you simply like participating in lively political debates, I invite you to become a “friend” of my Facebook page, where I periodically post stories of interest (well, at least of interest to me!). You can also follow me on Twitter.
